June 2008 Newsletter

What's New

EquiPortal has a brand new look. If you haven't dropped by for a while come and have a look and let us know what you think.

We have added two big features this month, which you can find on the main menu:

In Your Area
Add your location to our map to see the equestrian events, shops and services around you. We will also tell you how far away other EquiPortal members are from you. If you have a horse related business be sure to add yourself to our directory and set your location for FREE to appear on our map.

Equine Articles
This new section uses wiki technology to allow you to easily create and publish your own articles on EquiPortal. Do you have knowledge you would like to share with us? Here are a few ideas:

  • Add a review about your new equipment or the last horse book you read.
  • Add an article about your horse's breed using pictures of your own horse.
  • Write about riding techniques that work for you.
  • Promote horse campaigns you care about by writing an article.
You don't need to be an expert or a great writer and you can choose to allow other people to edit your article so we can produce pages as a group effort.

Facebook. EquiPortal now has a group and page on Facebook. If you are a Facebook member and enjoy our site, please add yourself as a fan on our page:

Horse Chat Rooms. Remember to set your status to Available in the chat gadget to allow other members to invite you to chat with them.

Forum Topics

Quiz Nights. We have proposed the idea of a horsey quiz night, with all horse related questions and answers. If you would like this event to go ahead let us know in the quiz night forum topic.

Barefoot. We have been talking about barefoot horses quite a lot this month. Search our forum for "barefoot" to find the various postings.

Remember to check our Topic of the week forum to learn more about other members.

Coming Up

We have many more features and improvements planned for EquiPortal. Check back regularly to watch us growing up.

Competition Results

The winner of last months free draw was "wildponies". The new draw is now open and this month's prize is a Headcollar & Lead Rope. Don't forget to enter, it only takes one click.

And finally...

If you haven't done so already, please come and introduce yourself in the "Introductions" forum.

See you all online or at the horse shows,

Kelly xx
